Club nexus (ivy granger, psychic detective #2.5)

A demon, an Unseelie faerie, and a vampire walk into a bar...

This Ivy Granger series special contains short stories set in Club Nexus, the hidden haunt of Harborsmouth's paranormal underworld.


A bargain gone wrong leads a highborn Unseelie faerie to life as an enslaved bartender with a taste for revenge.


Being a highly skilled predator doesn't necessarily put you at the top of the food chain at Club Nexus. A southern vampire with a hankering for blood and wanton violence may have bit off more than he can chew.


The demon attorney we love to hate has his eye on a certain rockabilly human. Too bad she's brought a crossbow loaded with holy water dipped bolts for this night on the town.


Just when Jinx needs a carefree girl's night out with Ivy, a smoking hot demon tries to buy her a drink.  She really is the unluckiest human on the planet.

Sample text:

With painful clarity I took in the details of the situation.  Ivy’s face paled and her skin began to glow.  Her hair lifted to dance around her head with unspent magical energy, but the wisp princess hadn’t yet learned how to direct the powers she’d inherited from her faerie father.

She was, however, skilled at slicing, dicing, and bashing things over the head.

Throwing knives slid from wrist sheaths to hit her palms, but at that angle, she’d be more likely to hit Jinx than Puck.  She started to strafe to the side, but she’d never be fast enough, wisp powers or no.

Torn twisted in a flanking maneuver—a fierce shadow with speed to rival a cheetah—but he too had been far across the room.  The cat sidhe’s attack would never land in time.  There was only one person who could possibly save Jinx, and that person was me.

Jinx’s eyes went wide as Puck grabbed at her hair and yanked her head back, baring her throat.  The jeweled hilt of a dagger flashed in the wisp light and I knew with certainty that Puck intended to slit her throat.  My mouth went dry, but I pushed away physiological distractions.  Fear had no claim on me.

I was a demon.

Fire burned within my veins, building to a fever pitch, but I held it firmly with my will.  I could not risk harming Jinx with jets of flame.  No, I would have to be precise, methodical in the execution of my attack.

In a microsecond, I determined the most salient course of action.  As Puck’s blade came arcing toward Jinx’s neck, my fingers still entwined with hers, I yanked her forward out of Puck’s grasp.  I winced at the sound of hair tearing from flesh and hoped that Jinx would forgive me later—if there was a later.
